Happy Thanksgiving Week & La La Land's Thankful Challenge


I am posting this card for the La La Land's Thankful Challenge! They have blog candy, which you can see on my side bar! Yummers!!
This is a card that I made for a very special friend!! The stamp came from the dollar bin at Michael's and I colored it with my Copic Ciao markers. The card stock is SU's Really Rust. I just love the DP underneath with the scarecrows and pumpkins. I believe I got this DP and the leaf DP from Hobby Lobby last year. I used the Nestabilities Deckled Edge Dies. The sentiment is from Flourishes. I put MS branches punch leaves on the corners and weighed them down with Pebbles. The ribbon is May Arts Rust that I bought from Artful Inkables. And of course I used dimensionals to add depth. Again I used my newest sponging (sp?) technique around the images. I am really excited that the sponging is taking so well, and need to move on to other techniques...LOL. This photograph stinks...but if you click on it...maybe it will look better. IRL it is just one of my favorites.
I do not know if I will have time to post again this week as my work requires this last week of the month to really get it (work) done. Therefore, I wish all of you the Very Best Thanksgiving!!!

Many Thanks to all of you who have been so faithful in following my blog! Your comments have made me laugh and smile! Please be safe this weekend and stay well, as I am not in the "mood" for any unhappy news!!

Hugs to you all!!!

I always like to click on your photos and enjoy them up close and personal. This card is darling and really in the spirit of the season, which is not yet Christmas, so I love to see the fall cards. I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving, Velta. I'm going to enjoy a five day weekend!
